Lullaby for You

by Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger

Selma Meerbaum-Eisinger

Come to me, then I'll weigh you
rock yourself to rest.
Come to me and don't cry
close your eyes.

I braid my hair out of you
a cradle, look!
you sleep free of all pain,
dream in it without effort.

My eyes are for you
flashing toys.
I give you my lips -
drink into her.
